That means Holliday remains on the Cardinals’ roster, but is doubtful to start any of the remaining three games against the Phillies and may not even be able to pinch-hit like he did in Game 1.
What’s probably keeping the Cardinals from removing him from the roster and adding a replacement is that doing so now would also make Holliday ineligible for the NLCS if they get that far.
So for now they’ll continue to play with a 24- or perhaps 24.5-man roster and Allen Craig will continue to capably fill in for Holliday, who hit .296 with 22 homers and a .912 OPS in 124 games during the regular season.
